New Media Consortium Offering Online “Symposium for the Future”

Posted on 10/1/2010 3:30:31 PM

The New Media Consortium (NMC) is holding a three-day, online “Symposium for the Future” from October 19–21, 2010. Registration closes on October 8.

Full details on the symposium 

To set the stage for the intensive discussions this symposium will foster, Lev Gonick (Case Western Reserve University vice president of Information Technology and CIO) will describe a vision for a digital city that is being built, bit by bit, right now in Cleveland. His keynote address, “From Digital Campus to Connected Community,” will illustrate some of the ways emerging technology can be applied to the larger challenges faced by a thriving, diverse community like Cleveland.

The NMC Series of Virtual Symposia, now in its eighth year, is an exploration of online communication tools. Each of the fifteen symposia held to date has taken advantage of the state of the art for online gatherings. The sixteenth symposium will be convened in the NMC’s conference center in Second Life. While the events take place in a virtual world, the symposium is not about virtual worlds.
